If you think Tim Cook is only in it for the money, you've got him twisted. The Apple CEO responded firmly to a proposal submitted by a shareholder that questioned Apple "affiliations that may primarily advance social or environmental causes rather than promoting shareholder value." The shareholder in question, the National Center for Public Policy Research, is advocating for more transparency with regards to Apple's environmental sustainability-driven decision-making.
The proposal was rejected, but prompted Cook to comment at Apple's annual shareholder meeting that the company is not motivated purely by profits. "If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons, you should get out of this stock," he said. Boom.
